Mind-Blowing Mac ‘n’ Cheese Donuts

Mac 'n' Cheese Donuts

What looks exactly like a donut but tastes like deep fried mac ‘n’ cheese?  Mac ‘n’ cheese donuts, of course.  Make. Them. Now.

How to Make Mac ‘n’ Cheese Donuts

Annie's Homegrown Totally Natural Shells & Real Aged Cheddar Mac & Cheese, 6-Ounce Boxes (Pack of 12)

Start with cooked mac 'n' cheese - straight from the box is just fine.  Chill in the refrigerator for a few hours.

Cuisinart DLC-2AWM 3-Cup Mini-Prep Plus Food Processor, Watermelon Sorbet

For every 6 donuts, food process 3 cups of cooked mac 'n' cheese with 3 large eggs until you get a mac 'n' cheese mush.

Wilton Nonstick 6-Cavity Donut Pan

Spray the cavities of a donut pan with non-stick spray (very important!) and fill them with mac 'n' cheese mush - all the way to the top.

Bake at 350 F for 20 minutes.  You need to bake the donuts before frying them or they won’t hold their donut shape.

Cuisinart CDF-100 Compact 1.1-Liter Deep Fryer, Brushed Stainless Steel

Once the baked donuts cool, remove them from the pan.  Deep fry in vegetable or peanut oil at 350 F for about 2 minutes on each side or until both sides are nicely browned.  You could  fry in a deep skillet, but using a deep fryer is much easier and cleaner.

Serve piping hot.  For extra fun, top the mac ‘n’ cheese donuts with extra cheese powder from a mac ‘n’ cheese box or homemade nacho cheese powder.

As far as I can tell from an extensive Google search, this is the first fried mac ‘n’ cheese donut in recorded history (I did see baked mac ‘n’ cheese donuts.).  So, if you spy my donuts alongside deep fried cupcakes and cupcakewurst at state fairs, let me know.  I want royalties, baby, or at least photos. :)

    I used an electric mini donut maker. We didnt use the eggs and they held together fine to fry. Used creamy mac n cheese, roasted jalapeno and then a layer of hard cheese. Made sliders out of them as the bread with BBQ chicken-shredded.
